For Reading Addicts Reading Challenge August 2017

By | Cwts Club Book Club | No Comments
Here at For Reading Addicts we wanted to create another reading challenge for ourselves and our followers, something a little different, something that perhaps takes us all out of our reading comfort zone and so we have decided that the For Reading Addicts reading challenge for 2017 will feature authors from around the world.

Each month we will select books written by authors who hail from a specific country and will then share that list on our Social Media pages and groups. We will then set up a discussion event for those who are taking part to chat about the books they read and to share their experiences of reading books from authors they may not ever have come across otherwise. We will also create a poll question asking for suggestions of authors for the next month’s country. Read More

This was as much for my sanity as theirs. I’ve always loved his books so using him to drown out the sibling bickering was no hardship for me.  Fantastic Mr Fox and Danny Champion of the World were their favourites and I was glad to see that they are still available to buy today (USUK). Read More
